Need a bunch of advice.... I have a really good friend who is jammed up right now. He has a horrible public defender and he intends on requesting a different one.

Can anybody recommend a reputable criminal public defender for Monmouth County? Can he get a public defender in a different county?

Thank you.

I don’t know if you can even choose your public defender. Might be stuck with what they give you.

Are public defenders actually private lawyers/firms that get selected by a judge, or is it actually a government position? I always thought it was a government position, and public defender is a direct government employee.

Had an excellent one in Mercer co. Figured the Public Defender would roll over given the situation. spoke to her at length and she ate the other establishment guy's lunch and spit out his lawyer. WOW! was that guy pissed! He claimed the judge agreed with him 99% of the time. glad the PD was in the same room with me after the trial, as he, a so called medical professional, verbally attacked me.


Luck of the draw?


Give the public defender some background, maybe your case is cut and dry against your friend with no room for a creative, effective defense??

What does it mean to be “jammed up”? If you commit a crime, accept the consequences. Maybe you’ll think twice about it next time. I guess this an example of the MSNBC liberals advising criminals:

“When you break society’s laws, it’s not your fault. Blame other people for your sins, preferably people who are long dead. Instead of saying “I committed a crime and the police caught me”, use the passive voice and say ‘I got jammed up’. And in other news, claims by Republicans that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s IQ is 85 are patently false. Her IQ is actually 88”.

I wonder if government counsel is telling your friend a truth he does not want to hear.

Yeah, I always laugh when they interview a friend or relative of the suspect and they say "he made a mistake". A mistake happens when you do something wrong because you didn't know what was right. Committing a crime is rarely a "mistake".

It means he was charged with a crime, and like any intelligent person charged with a crime, they are seeking the best possible defense available to them. If you were charged with a crime, you would likely do the same.

Exactly. I've never been charged with anything, but just being charged doesn't mean you're guilty. Besides, I'm sure it's possible to be assigned an apathetic or tired attorney and wonder if you'll get a fair trial.
